    Hey Brian? Need your help. See my thread about the Advertising Signs behind Homeplate.

    Our skipper gets no points for originality…..concerning his lineup cards. Goldy should dong a couple tonight. Go Cards!

    Our guys need to welcome this rookie pitcher to the big leagues…bases loaded one out for Goldy…time for a round tripper.

    And the goon grounded into a double play. Wish Carpenter wouldn’t had gotten hit.

    …or a double play. Gotta get those runners home. Acuña is now in scoring position after a steal. None out for the Braves.

    Goldy, you’re killing us out here!

    Wow, what a huge blunder… Acuña’s speed turns a pickoff into an error and a Braves run. Bad play there.

    Did we have a play on Acuna? It didn’t appear like it was worth the risk with the way most of the staff likes to airmail balls the previous 3 seasons.

    Maybe we should start calling him Walka.

    The Cards are facing a rookie they’ve never seen before…the script could pretty much write itself at this point.

    Right you Stlcard25. We should have kicked the tires a little harder on Gio last month when he was out there for the taking. He’s dealing another spiffy game for Milwaukee tonight in the City of Brotherly Love…..I once took an oath promising the adherence to “virtue, diligence and brotherly love”……but it was in Bowling Green, Ohio and not Philadelphia, Pa.

    And the cubbies may not lose another game this year……doubling up the Redlegs late in the Queen City.

    Shutout after one day after scoring double digits. Sounds about right.

    Didn’t even need to watch to know that would happen. Really need to start betting against us after an offensive explosion

    Well, we didn’t lose any ground at least. Eugene hit a two run dong in the last of the 8th to tie the game and then the Reds walked in off in the last of the 10th on a hit by Puig. 6-5 Reds.

    This team is really starting to remind me of the 2016 club…offense could score in bunches when it had good games, but also struggled to score at all when it didn’t score 8+ runs. Staff was mediocre and the bullpen was decent but with a few maddening games.

    2-4 in the last two series with a +14 run differential. In the last 13 games they are 3-10 with a mere -9 run differential. It’s feast or famine for these Cards right now.

    Shildt needs to tinker with that lineup a bit. I’m getting sick of him trotting out that same batting order. Continuing to leadoff with Carp is just plain silly at this point. Bat him 7th until he gets it together. Try this:

    DeJong
    JMart
    Goldy
    Marcell
    Yadi
    Bader
    Carp
    Wong

    In a came as close as this you can’t come up empty with runners in scoring position and make bonehead plays like we did tonight. The homer in the 9th off Gant was icing on the cake of a crappy evening of STL sports.

    CMart not impressive against AA hitters but the FO really played that down.

    Ozuna changing agents from Boras to Yadi’ agent. Can you smell extension? Not possible with Bore-Ass who has an aversion to extensions – it affects his bottom line evidently.

    “Shutout after one day after scoring double digits. Sounds about right.”
    This is really getting to be a habit huh?
